---- — OTTUMWA - The Ottumwa Barracudas Swim Team is a coed entry level program and a member of the Greater Iowa Swim League.

If you can swim the length of the pool (any stroke) without touching the bottom and are at least five-years-old, you can be a Barracuda.

We will begin practice and registration on Monday, Nov. 11 at The Beach at 5 p.m. Practice will start promptly at 5:30 p.m. that evening. Registration will run through Nov. 19. Swim team scholarships are available.

Practices will be held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Practice and meet attendance are not mandatory. Come as often or as little as you’d like.

Come and learn the different strokes, get some exercise, make new friends, and have fun. Swimming is a great sport that allows everyone to participate. No one “sits on the bench” during a swim meet.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Head Coach Heidi Owens at 682-3360.
